[NHL] Season close to being cancelled

Recommended Posts

This must be how the condemned man feels when the guard comes by, dragging his keys along the bars just before midnight and says, "Not tonight Charlie."

Maybe tomorrow, but not tonight.

So it was for the 2004-05 NHL season Thursday night.

Most believed the season had been given its death sentence with the rejection of an owners' proposal by the players Wednesday afternoon. The proposal was roundly criticized by players, agents and analysts as reflecting the league's single-minded determination to bring the union to its knees even if it means becoming the first North American professional sports league to lose an entire season to a labor dispute.

The question now is, will the next season going to be effected ?


Unless a miracle happens today then I expect we'll be in this same position next year at this time. :angry:

Sudden-death NHL labour talks ended badly Friday. The NHL and the NHL Players' Association met from 11 a.m. EST and ended talks around 3 p.m. EST. NHLPA Executive Director Bob Goodenow said afterwards that no progress was made in the past two days and the Players' Association is on its way back to Toronto.
